Five top players from the Australian cricket team, who are in Durban for the first T20 of the three-match series starting tomorrow, spent the afternoon at Hillcrest AIDS Centre Trust (HACT) on 2 March, as part of the Cricket Cares campaign. They learnt about HIV/AIDS in South Africa, had a tour of the Centre, and played a friendly against a team of gogos (grannies) who are themselves busy preparing for HACT’s Gogolympics, taking place on April 22. The grannies won the soccer match 4/2, much to the shock of the Aussies! The Aussie then proceeded to teach the grannies the basics of cricket – a game that was new to them. Cricket Australia donated sporting equipment such as balls, bibs, cricket bats and sporting ware to HACT for use by the gogos in the Gogolympics.
